Vocabulary on the move. Each student has a word around their head or maybe a sticky note on their back. They have to go around the room and ask others for clues as to what their word is (synonym, antonym, example, definition, etc. ) they then use their clues to figure out their word.
Vocab on the Move....during a unit review in reading we typically play this game. The students all have a sentence strip with a vocab word on it. They do not know what the word is though. They have to travel around the room to find a synonym, antonym, example, sentence, etc. The clues are used to determine the word on their heads.
